Part arming with Recipies

Premier Elite 64, all zones in area A.
I am trying to create a recipe that will part arm the system (garage) every evening and disarm every morning, when the system is disarmed, i.e. when we are at home.
Before creating the recipe I Have set the part arm for the garage to Part arm 1 by omitting all other zones. The recipe cant distinguish between Part Arm 1, 2 or 3, only acts on Part Arm 1.
Set up a timer, on at 22:30, off at 07:00
Recipe is - If timer and alarm disarmed Then part arm.
The problem - if I make the recipe active by moving the slider from black to blue in the recipe, the system always part arms, even when it is outside the timer times.
Any ideas how to correct this.

wrt to using part arms, I wouldn't be able to say without a lot of testing (with exact firmware being used)

I note this is posted in the Texecom forum and not answered by Texecom yet.

As for solutions place the garage on area B and time arm and disarm using the the control timers would probably be the simplest.

There isn't even an option to use a latch key for other than part arm 1, which has always been disappointing.

Years ago I seem to remember using omit key so this maybe worth you looking at, have to be honest cant remember exactly how it behaves and seem to remember it having some specific behaviour.
I see Texecom have advised the part arm recipe you want will be available in the next release

Until the next release of the app the recipe will only work on Part Arm 1 on the setup I have i.e. all zones in same area. I have had to set 2 separate timers one turn on the part arm the other to turn off the part arm. Unlike the Smart Plugs which will turn on and off with one timer.

Part arm now arming each night and disarming each morning.
